Oil Rig Explosion Kills Three Men

An oil rig explosion was reported to have recently occurred in north Upton County. According to the local Sherriff’s department, three men were killed as a result of the explosion. The men were all related to one another and were employed by a pulling unit company that was contracted by Parsley Energy.

The investigator looking into the accident said that they are still in the early stages of their work. No one knows yet what caused the explosion and why it occurred when it did. Due to the nature of the explosion, the scene is still very insecure and dangerous for anyone except the fire department to be onsite. OSHA will arrive when the scene is deemed safe enough for investigations to continue.
